With music by Marcello Marocchi and lyrics by Giampiero Artegiani, the song is a ballad comparing the beauty of the singer's lover to that of the ocean. Di Capri opens the song by explaining that "Only the one who never falls in love/Doesn't have a heart to sing". Later, he tells his lover, "When I call you: "Butterfly"/Fly and I'll fly with you" and declares that "Love is what make us live".
